Welcome to the microMechanics of Deformation Research Group

The microMechanics of Deformation Research Group at Rutgers University uses advanced computational tools to study the mechanical behaviors of materials. The research conducted in the group lies at the intersection of multiscale materials modeling, deformation micromechanics, and mechanical performance of materials. Computational techniques used in the group span from atomistic to continuum scales, with the goal of developing a fundamental understanding of how deformation micromechanisms affect mechanical properties. The primary outputs of the group’s work are:

  • Micromechanically informed models for engineering predictions
  • Insight for computational design of advanced materials
  • Improved theoretical understanding of mechanical phenomena
